1 Buildings Working Group 5-Year Strategic Sustainability Plan Submitted to: Campus Environmental Sustainability Team Submitted by: Buildings Working Group December 8, 2009 CEST Buildings Working Group

2 I. Buildings Group Membership Chair Working Group Members Carole Acquesta, AIA, PEDirector, Capital Project ManagementFacilities Division, NC State NameTitleAffiliation Kevin CummingsArchitectural Systems AnalystFacilities Operations, NC State Tracy DixonDirectorSustainability Office, NC State Tom MooreEngineering & Architectural SupportRepair & Renovations, NC State Barry OlsonAssociate DirectorHousing, NC State John Royal Specialist for Building Construction & Mgmt.Engineering Research, NC State Ken SatterwhiteSite DirectorCollege of Veterinary Medicine, NC State Dona StankusSolar Extension SpecialistSolar Center, NC State Allen Boyette Director, Building Maintenance & OperationsFacilities Operations, NC State Lisa MauneAssistant Director Design and Construction Services, NC State Rachel MillerProject CoordinatorCapital Project Management, NC State CEST Buildings Working Group

3 II. Vision Statement Create, preserve and operate buildings that meet or exceed University needs in a sustainable and efficient manner and effectively communicate and demonstrate these values to current and future generations. CEST Buildings Working Group

4 III. Buildings Group Commitments & Mandates NC General Statute (Energy Efficiency in Buildings Law) NC State Commitment to LEED Silver Certified Buildings (New Construction & Renovations over 20,000 SF) NC State Commitment as LED University NC State Commitment to American Colleges & Universities Climate Commitment UNC-GA Sustainability Policy NC State Design & Construction Guidelines FCAP Repair & Renovations CEST Buildings Working Group

5 IV. Current Status CVM Terry Hospital – LEED Silver pending Facilities Operations Support Space – LEED Silver pending Hunt Library – LEED Silver goal Student Health Center - LEED Silver goal Centennial Campus Student Housing – LEED Silver goal Talley Student Center – LEED Silver goal Nonwovens Facility – LEED Silver goal Cates/ Yarbrough Plants – maximize campus energy efficiency 13 Bldg Performance Contract – improve energy efficiency (lights, HVAC) EB III – green roof Design & Construction Guidelines incorporate Green initiatives Integrated design approach has become the standard design model CEST Buildings Working Group

6 IV.Current Status (contd) SCO- Life Cycle Cost Analysis and Energy Efficiency Requirements need to be resolved Establishment of sustainable goals at project kick-off with Building Committee Challenges of funding sustainable goals vs programmatic goals Educating users, Building Committee members, etc. CEST Buildings Working Group

7 V.5 Year Strategies Building strategies: Apply sustainable practices to all new buildings & renovations, including private buildings LEED Silver certification for all projects over 20K GSF Maximize space utilization Minimize new building footprints Create prototype documents for all projects to gain credit for campus-wide initiatives not currently recognized by USGBC Obtain funding & political support to reach goals Build flexible space that can be easily repurposed, plan for multiple uses Consider micro-climate during planning & design Holistic renovations Adaptive re-use and renewal Operable windows & individual controls for occupant comfort Re-use and repurpose materials (doors, windows, hardware) Market campus sustainable efforts, outreach CEST Buildings Working Group

8 Land use strategies: Consider site during Master Planning to maximize site characteristics and climatic benefits Master Plan for most effective development density Respect and restore local watersheds Reduce energy usage by 20% for all buildings Reduce water usage by 30% for all buildings Employ technologies that help conserve energyReduce energy usage by 20% across campus Reduce water usage by 30% across campus Energy & water strategies: Academic strategies: Increase distance learning initiatives and programs Engage faculty & students and their research CEST Buildings Working Group

9 Materials & Purchasing strategies: Use materials to help reduce the carbon footprint Encourage use of local materials Refurbish furniture for re-use Waste reduction & recycling strategies: Identify sources that will assist with recycling of materials Employ construction reuse & recycling methods Re-use furniture and other similar items rather than discard to a landfill CEST Buildings Working Group
